Award-winning children’s book creators Martin Jenkins and Grahame Baker-Smith team up for a large-scale look at our planet, from the big bang to the dinosaurs and beyond.

Before humans took their first steps, there were billions of years of vibrant and varied life-forms on Earth. Discover the story of our planet during this time, from the formation of the universe to the first mammals and all the incredible life that flourished in between. Covering ice ages and fossils, the first life in the sea and on land, the time of the dinosaurs, and the rise of mammals, Martin Jenkins navigates through millennia of prehistory in a style both enthralling and accessible. With superb illustrations from Kate Greenaway Medal winner Grahame Baker-Smith, this is a captivating journey through the life of our planet before we called it ours.

MY THOUGHTS:

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

This is one incredible, informative and exceptional book. The information contained within its 80 pages is so extraordinary that I’ve decided to keep it in my library for reference. It’s great for kids who might need to do projects for school; the language is geared toward kids who are around the age of eight to adult. 🙂 It could be used by younger children with the aid of an adult.

I’ve never come across a book of this nature that explains the evolution process, the different periods of development, the path of evolution to the rise of humans in so much detail, in a way that young readers can understand. The artwork… Wowza!

Listen up parents… if you want a book that focuses on evolution for your child to use for school studies, or projects, I can’t recommend this book enough. It’s loaded with information and illustrations to blow your minds.

This book should be in every school library!
